About Interactive Systems Worldwide Inc.
Interactive Systems Worldwide, Inc. develops an interactive, client/server based computer system for purposes of wagering on sporting events. The company provides interactive gaming services using the SportXction System to business partners, such as licensed bookmakers and others located in the United Kingdom, Gibraltar, and Mexico.
The SportXction System
The SportXction System enables users to wager during the course of a sporting event, such as soccer, football, baseball, basketball, golf, tennis, rugby, cricket, and snooker. The SportXction System accepts bets not only on the outcome of a sporting event, but also on discrete parts of the event and on specific game situations. The SportXction System permits betting continuously while the game is in progress, or between game events, such as downs, pitches, changes in ball possession and similar situations, permitting frequent placing, and cashing of wagers.
The SportXction System software monitors and changes the odds on the contestants in a sporting event to induce the players to wager such that the betting pool for each betting proposition is continuously driven toward a financial balance, to within a pre-set level. The SportXction System maintains a record of wagers placed by each bettor and keeps an account for each bettor, subtracting bet amounts and adding payouts. The SportXction System has been developed to allow wagers to be placed simultaneously through various input devices interconnected to the central system, such as interactive television set-top boxes, personal computers communicating via the Internet, and mobile telephones. The company has also developed a non-wagering version of the SportXction System.
The companys subsidiary, Global Interactive Gaming Limited (GIG), operates as a British interactive gaming service provider located in London, England, that markets its services to interactive television carriers which employ satellite, cable and terrestrial programming, mobile telephone operators, licensed bookmakers, and casinos.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
